Other Media | SeafoodSource: Pacific Seafood temporarily closes Oregon plant after first COVID-19 diagnosis

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Pacific Seafood temporarily closed a plant in Warrenton, Oregon, U.S.A. after a worker tested positive for COVID-19 last week. It was the first positive coronavirus test for Pacific Seafood, which is among the largest seafood companies in the United States.

John King, the general manager of the plant in Warrenton, released a statement late last week saying the seafood giant is now among “many businesses that have been directly touched by COVID-19."

“Our thoughts are with the affected team member, who is resting well at home, and we have no reason to believe that any other team members or products have been affected,”King said.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Norwegian government scraps salmon farm resource rent tax

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Seen as more moderate taxation as previously mulled.

In a press release, the Norwegian government writes that is proposing to introduce a production tax on salmon, trout and rainbow trout in the state budget for 2021. The proceeds from the levy will be distributed to the aquaculture and county municipalities. At the same time, the distribution of revenue from the sale of new permits will changes.

The tax is set at NOK 0.40 (EUR 0.03) per kg of fish produced. This will provide about EUR 44.7 million annually in increased revenues to the municipal sector as of 2022. No surplus-resource rent tax now proposed.

Other Media | FishFarmer: All aboard the ‘Salmon Express’

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

THE train has started to take the strain in moving salmon and other seafood from Norway into key European markets.

A new direct service opened up this weekend from the northern port of Narvik to the southern Swedish city of Malmo where the fish is loaded onto refrigerated lorries for onward distribution to processing facilities in France, Poland and the United Kingdom.

Trains have used Narvik before, but this is the first time for several years they have gone so far and to a destination close to mainland Europe. Malmo is only a short distance from Denmark.

Among the salmon farming companies reported to be using the route are Norway Royal Salmon, Cermaq and Lerøy, but the service, run by the Oslo based transport company CargoNet, is also open to exporters of pelagic and white fish.
